then the put the mask on and attach the mask to the bed keeping you in place unable to move at all – additionally i have a mouth peice with deoresses my tongue so its in the same place each time  this so far is the worst bit..

a few adjustments

and im done .. they all go and hide from the radiation

Each time you go into the tunnel you have a scan and they have to line you up by moving the bed some times only mm’s to make sure your in the right place for the radiotherapy !

You come out of the tunnel once thats done and they say starting your tratment now … and you go back in and there different noises – the scan has noises you this is different .. by this time you want to move and i am taking myself out of panicing every ten seconds … they say you cannot feel it but i dont know – think your sking feels warm on and off !

 

as you leave you feel like they have literally zapped your energy – and you just want to sleep – tonight i have a sore throat – i am hoping this isnt the start of my side effects but time will tell – i am shattered so off to bed

 

nunnight – still smiling xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
